THE SIN­GLE DAD’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY: PAR­ENT­ING IN THE REAL WORLD

ROGER MCE­WAN (PALMER­STON PRESS, $29.99)

North & South - - Review -

Mce­wan was an ac­tive and in­volved fa­ther even be­fore his mar­riage ended and he found him­self con­fronting the in­tri­ca­cies of shared­care sin­gle par­ent­ing. For­tu­nately, he has a PHD in man­age­ment, some­thing many sin­gle par­ents would say they have earned with­out writ­ing a the­sis.

He claims this isn’t a self-help book, yet it’s prac­ti­cal, di­rec­tional and very help­ful on is­sues from house­keep­ing and eat­ing to starting school and bach­e­lor be­hav­iour. Which makes The Sin­gle Dad’s Guide to the Galaxy per­fect for any­one who’d ap­pre­ci­ate some wise ad­vice on the re­al­ity of that most dif­fi­cult of all un­der­tak­ings: be­ing a par­ent.
